Joan Lin Bio: Early Life, Family, and Education
Growing up in Taipei was rather hard for Joan; being the second of five children, Joan had to leave school when she was only 12 years old, as her family was poor and she had to find a job to provide for them. She decided to try herself in the show business, particularly acting, and it eventually turned out to be a rather smart move.
Determined to rise above the poverty that her family lived in, young Joan started auditioning for roles in Hong Kong and Taiwanese films. It was in 1972 when she was 19 years old that she made her acting debut in the kung-fu film “The Hero of Chiu Chow”, and stunned the critics and casting producers which resulted in new leading roles. Gradually, Joan’s career improved and she became more popular, more so after 1976 when she starred in the popular comedy film “Coffee, Wine & Lemon Juice”, next to Han Chin and Chuan-Ju Wang.
